A Delaware judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by three members of Cheap Trick against the group's former drummer, saying the dispute should be decided in Illinois federal court.

The three musicians sought court validation of their purported ouster of drummer Brad Carlson, known as Bun E. Carlos, as a board member of the band's business entities earlier this year.

But Chancellor Leo Strine Jr. said Thursday many issues in the Delaware lawsuit were raised in an earlier complaint filed in Illinois in which Carlos and former band manager David Frey claim their purported ousters were invalid, and that they are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Strine says the fundamental issue is whether Carlson, who stopped touring with Cheap Trick years ago, is still a member of the band.
